Miranda Kerr takes over as the new face of Mango

Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr is to replace Britian's Kate Moss as the new face of High Street brand Mango. Kerr, married to Hollywood actor Orlando Bloom, has been chosen to model the fashion store's Spring/Summer 2013 campaign.

"I am delighted to be collaborating with Mango for the Spring/Summer 2013 season," she said in a statement, adding, "We had a great time shooting the campaign and it was very easy working with the entire team. What's more, Mango is a brand that I love. You always find the perfect garment for every occasion! Photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin were in charge of the photo shoot. The excellent team also included stylist Géraldine Saglio, make-up artist Lisa Butler and hairdresser Christiaan Houtenbos."

In some of the photographs from the shoot, Kerr is seen in a simple white blazer, a black top and black-and-white trousers.

Kerr who is married to Hollywood star Orlando Bloom and has a son with the Pirates of the Caribbean actor, started modelling at the age of 13. She found international fame as a Victoria's Secret Angel in 2006 (a position she still holds) and had recently led a line-up of beautiful women at the annual Victoria's Secret Lingerie show in New York. The 29-year-old, who has also been named the Sexiest Woman Alive by Esquire, admitted she loves flaunting her curves.

"I believe in celebrating the female figure and embracing what we've been given, not hiding that," she said, "I don't really think of rules, as long as it's classy and timeless and it's something I wouldn't be ashamed of."

Kerr was recently spotted at W Magazine's 40th anniversary party at the Gramercy Park Hotel in New York, looking gorgeous in a classic grey-blue flowing gown, with a thigh-high slit. She paired the dress with blue Bvlgari earrings, black peep-toe shoes and a clutch.

Meanwhile, Moss has starred as the face of Mango for the past three seasons and worked with famous photographer Terry Richardson on the campaign shoots. In the past, celebrities who graced Mango's campaigns include Scarlett Johansson, Penélope Cruz, Milla Jovovich, Lizzy Jagger, Karolina Kurkova, Naomi Campbell, Eva Herzigova, Claudia Schiffer, Christy Turlington and Diane Kruger.
